Titanium and its alloys are materials that exhibit unique combination of mechanical and physical properties that enable their usage in various fields. In spite of having a lot of advantages, their usage is limited because they are difficult to machine due to their inherent properties of high specific heat capacity, reactivity with tool and low thermal conductivity thereby causing excessive tool wear. To facilitate the process of machining, it becomes necessary to find out and relieve the residual stress caused during machining. Since experiments cannot be performed for each instance, creation of an FE model is desirable. In this paper a finite element analysis (FEA) of the machining of Ti6Al4V for different cutting speeds is presented. A 3D finite element model is developed with the Titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) as the workpiece and a four flute carbide tip end mill cutter as the tool to predict the residual stress developed within the titanium alloy after machining. The finite element model utilises the Johnson-Cook model to depict the plasticity and the damage criteria and implements the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formulation to increase the accuracy of the model. The FE model has been developed and the findings are presented. The results indicate that residual stresses are maximum at the surface and decrease linearly along the depth and increase as the cutting speed and depth of cut are increased.

Abstract Ti-6Al-4V is extensively used in aerospace and bio-medical applications. In an automated machining environment monitoring of tool conditions is imperative. In this study, Experiments were conducted to classify the tool conditions during High Speed Machining of Titanium alloy. During the machining process, vibration signals were monitored continuously using accelerometer. The features from the signal are extracted and a set of prominent features are selected using Dimensionality Reduction Technique. The selected features are given as an input to the classification algorithm to decide about the condition of the tool. Feature selection has been carried out using J48 Decision Tree Algorithm. Classifications of tool conditions were carried out using Machine Learning Algorithms namely J48 Decision Tree algorithm and Artificial Neural Network (ANN). From the analysis, it is found that ANN is producing comparatively better results. The methodology adopted in this study will be useful for online tool condition monitoring.

T. Praveenkumar, Dr. Saimurugan M., Krishna Kumar P., and Ramachandran, K. I., “Fault Diagnosis of Automobile Gearbox Based on Machine Learning Techniques”, Procedia Engineering, vol. 97, pp. 2092–2098, 2014.[Abstract]


Gearbox is an essential device employed in industries to vary speed and load conditions according to the requirements. More advancement in its design and operation leads to increase in industrial applications. The failure in any of the components of gearbox can lead to production loss and increase maintenance cost. The component failure has to be detected earlier to avoid unexpected breakdown. Vibration measurements are used to monitor the condition of the machine for predictive maintenance and to predict the gearbox faults successfully. This paper addresses the use of vibration signal for automated fault diagnosis of gearbox. In the experimental studies, good gears and face wear gears are used to collect vibration signals for good and faulty conditions of the gearbox. Each gear is tested with two different speeds and loading conditions. The statistical features are extracted from the acquired vibration signals. The extracted features are given as an input to the support vector machine (SVM) for fault identification. The Performance of the fault identification system using vibration signals are discussed and compared.

This paper presents a finite element model that has been developed to predict the effect of residual stress induced in the work material during multiple pass turning of AISI 4340 steel. Chip morphology and force variation during machining are also quantified using the FE model. Finite element model was developed using arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation along with Johnson-Cook material model and Johnson-Cook damage model. The finite element model developed in this study was validated experimentally by studying the chip morphologogy and cutting force variation during the machining. Results indicate that there is good correlation existing between numerical results and experimental results.
